"Long ago in a distant land...
AKU, the shapeshifting master of darkness,
unleashed an UNSPEAKABLE EVIL!
But, a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword,
Stepped forth to oppose me.




Before the final blow was struck,
I tore open a portal in time,
and flung him into the future,
where my evil is LAW!
Now, the fool seeks to return to the past,
and undo the future that is AKU!"


Aku is the main antagonist of the 2001 Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack. Born from The Black Mass of Darkness, Aku was the pure manifestation of evil, a shape-shifting demon who took over the world and ruled it for countless eons.

Tournament history[edit]

One of the most iconic competitors of Mr. /co/lympus, Aku was part of the original 2018 Elite Eight and has since established himself as a consistently strong character through the years. He attained the third seed in his first two appearances, first finishing 7th place in 2018 and losing in the fourth round of the 2020 tournament to the eventual champion Tom Cat. Aku returned in 2021 as the 10th seed, this time making all the way to the semi-finals round, and would claim the 3rd place match against the year's dark horse contestant Marvin the Martian, making him the first Elite Eight in any tournament to place higher than his previous best. In concordance with their dynamic in the actual show, Aku is often seen taunting his nemesis Jack over tournament success, although it has been expressed there is very little interest for a potential match-up between the two. While he lost surprisingly early on in 2023 in a fair fight against eventual Elite Eight newcomer Dale Gribble, Aku would at least get the last laugh when anons in the thread created a narrative where he forced Jack to make it all the way to semi-finals instead of succumbing to a quicker out.

Outside of Mr. /co/lympus, Aku plays as a gold-medal forward for the board's virtual divegrass team, and has his own goalhorn that is played whenever he scores on the pitch.
